FRANKLIN CAMP
Vivid History of the Famous
North Fork Mineral
Zone*
Scores   of Prominent  Engineers Have Inspected the
Large Ore Bodies
[Serial Correipondence uf The Sun.]
Fkankun City, ft. C, August 6.
—The lure of gold, silver and copper is rapidly transforming a howling wilderness into n civilized coin-
unity. The process can be studied
here at close range.' It is vibrating
with life flavored with a coloring
and furnished with a pieturisque-
iiess only found in the far West. It
would stir the dullest imagination.
Franklin camp wus only a name
six years ago when Frank McFir-
lanc, trapper, prospector and frontiersman, and Jim Weleher, better
known as "Deadshot Jim," on account of his unerring aim, discovered pay ore. Macfarlane located what
is now known as the Banner mine,
copper-gold proposition with seper-
ate leads of galona of fabulous
wealth. His fellow-pioneer, Dead-
shot Jim, planted stakes on McKinley mountain on the south side of
Franklin ereek.v His location has
since proven to he a veritable bonanza. Other prospectors rushed in during thc following spring, and many
promising locations were recorded.
The camp, however, languished for
several years owing to its seeming
remoteness from transportation. The
nearest railway station is at (.irand
Forks, forty-live miles down the
north folk of the Kettle river. .Many
prospector)), despairing of railway
facilities within the next decade,
gradually abandoned their holdings.
Meantime an exhaustive report on
the camp had-been prepared by Ur.
Brock, ol' the Dominion geological
survey. It was illustrated by a
colored map setting ortb the ideal
geological conditions which exiBt
here. According to this well known
authority the copper-gold belt is restricted to a region about four mil. s
wide by eight or nine in length north
and south. Its eastern boundary is
situatsd several thousand feet easterly of the east fork of the north
fork. The original basin, composed
of sedinienlary rock, has since heen
elevated in places. McKinley and
Banner mountains and Mineral Hill
indicate where a seismic disturbance
at some remote period titlted I lie
basin skywards for over one thousand feet above the valley. Their
summits and slopes are now covered
with stakes.
A system of parallel lime dykes in
this mineral-bearing zone have an
apparent trend in a northeasterly
und southwesterly direction. At
various points they alternate with
bird's-eye porphyry, so dear to the
prospector's heart. Tbe richest ore
is usually found at the contacts. As
a general thing, the summits of the
hills of thiB ancient basin are surmounted with massive ridges of porphyry. In the valley and extending up tbe slopes almost to the crests
occur hugo houlders of conglomerate
or "pudding stone." Their presence ■
is indicative of great volcanic action.
The pebbles comprising these masses,
rounded and worn, are cemented together firmly by an eruptive rock resembling audesite.
The second period of the history
of Franklin camp dates hack two
years, when George A. MacLeod, of
(irand Forks, acquired the McKinley group and started development
work on an extensive scale under
the direction of A. I). McPhee, a
practical mining man with an invaluable experience gained in Colorado. It is now generally conceded
that the McKinley is destinced to
become one of the greatest mines in
British Columbia. The property has
long since passed the stage of doubt
and uncertainty. Already there is
a Very large tonnage in sight. The
ore is a typical high-grade chalcopyrite, with subsidiary values in
gold and silver. The original surface showing has been replaced by a
series of large open cuts along the
trend of the ore zone. A long tunnel and a drift have likewise proven
the magnitude of the self fluxing ore
bodies. This work has been supplemented by extensive diamond
drilling operations. Two plants
have demonstrated the continuance
of the ore at depth. They have
been running day and night for
several months. Recently a big
outcrop of magnetite was uncovered
on the surface, ensuring fluxing material for many years.
The ownership of the McKinley
is now vested in a company controlled by F. August Heinze, the
Butte mining millionaire, and several New York capitalists. Mr. Heinze
closed the deal after a personal visit
to the camp last fall. His purchase
augurs well for the future of the
camp. The Butte operator, who
fought the -Standard Oil trust to a
standstill, has expressed himself in
enthusiastic terms regarding the future of this region. Shortly afterwards his company acquired working bonds on twenty other claims in
Franklin camp. This imposing
group is si tun led in the heart of the
mineral bet. anil with development
will probably make other mines
equally us rich as the McKinley,
whose ores are popularly credited
with averaging twice the value of
the low grade ores ofthe Boundary
district. Tbe possibilities of mining in Franklin can be realized from
the fact thnt the I'mnhy Consolidated within Ihe past six years bus
bislribilted dividends exceeding
(9-18,000 exclusive of the enormous
profits invested in enlarging the
smelter at Grand Forks and adding
to the equipment of ihe mines at
I'hoenix. Impressed with this wonderful showing, Mr. Heinze and his
associates have not desilnlcd to expend money very freely. If half the
claims now under bond are taken
Up many prospectors will realize
handsome fortunes. The McKinley
will probably soon be equipped with
a com pressor plant.
Heinzie's investment has stimulated
and even given the eamp a prominence it never before occupied. .Since
early spring the mineral belt has lieen
overrun with prospectors from Nelson,
Itosslund, Grand Forks, Phoenix,
Greenwood, as well as from various
Ameiieitn mining camps. Abandoned
claims have been restakeil lind several
hundred new locations have been
mode.    A continuous fusilade all day

Fourth Street Bridge By-Law
Introduced and Read a
Third Time
Continmd on Second Page.
The city council, last night, did not
meet until after 9 o'clock, as the time
between the regular convening hour
and tbat time was consumed by the
finance committee in'signing accounts.
And *.t was after midnight when adjournment was reached. Those present were: Mayor Hutton,, Aid. Clements, Cooper, Gaw, Lequime, McDonald and Spraggett.
On motion  of  Aid. NcDonald, the
-ulitr order of business was suspended, and, in order uot to keep an interested delegation waiting all night, the
trades license by-law was the first
topic considered. Mr. McDonald, in
moving the reconsideration and final
passage of the measure, stated that he
would like an expression of opinion on
the by-law before the vote was taken.
Mr. Fripp, of the British American
Trust coinpany, expressed his appreciation for the consideration shown the
delegation by the council in making
the by-law the first order of business.
He did not think it was fair for the
couneil to reduce the revenue of the
city by cutting out certain licenses,
and then endeavor to make up the de
ficiency by increasing the fees of
others: He was of the opinion that
it would be unjust to raise the license
on banks. The banks were always
willing to pay a fair fee. The prevailing idea that banks made enormous profits did not always hold good.
There were many tradesmen in the
city whose profits for the y.ar excee .-
ed that of the banks, He asked that
the section raising the license fee fnr
banks be stricken from the by-law.
Aid. Cooper desired to know the
license fee on hanks in other cities.
Mr. Fripp said he was not Informed
on the subject. Mr. Steeves. of the
Royal bank, stated that in unincorporated municipalities like Chilliwiick
fie fee was S400 per year, hut that in
e ties the banks paid no license.
Aid. .Spraggett said it would not
be right to throw away tbe peddlers'
license fee and give it to the province.
A purchaser, in dealirlg with a merchant, could always return the goods
if mil satisfactory, hut buyers hail no
redress from peddlers. Aid. Lequime
expressed the same opinion, Aid.
Clement did not think that tile abolition of tbe peddler**1 license would
save the the consumer one cent. He
did not think any particular reason
existed for raising thc license tin
banks, although he thought the telephone companies should be taxed to
the limit of the law, as they paid no
other rates. Aid. Cooper was in favor
of raising the peddlers' license instead
f abolishing it. Aid. Gaw, at lirst,
had lieen iu favor of cheap vegetables.
.Since more light bad lieen thrown on
the subject he had changed his mind.
The city might as well have the the
20 {peddlers' license fee as the pin
vince.
Aid.   McDonald said he would he
compelled to defend bis crippled and
abused by-law. He felt certain that
he had been elected with the expressed understanding that he would abolish the peddlers' license. There was
no reason why the banks should not
pay a license fee nf $150 a year Aid.
Gaw had voted for the first, second
uml third reading of the by-law; antl
lie would stick Ut it even if he was a
little mistaken. The merchants charg-
qioutrageous prices, but if the work-
ngiiien did not receive fair treatment
from the business men a co-operative
store would be .established to supply
the people of Grand Forks, Phoenix,
Greenwood. If this was done, the
people now in business would have to
quit. Now was the time to tear
down the barh-wire fence, antl not
protect multimillionaires like P. Purns
k Co. Mr. McDonald made a regular
political free trade speech, on local
and national issues. The former council that had passed the trades license
by-law hod been faint-hearted—the
same af the present council. He
could plainly see that the by-law was
to be voted down. He di..n't believe
that a peddlers' license could be col.
lected according to law. He warned
the aldermen that) if they voted down
the by-law they would vote against
the wishes of the people, and finally
made a plea to have the measure submitted to the people.
A long discussion then followed as
to the legality of the peddlers' license.
On motion of Aid. Lequime and
Cooper, the hy law was laitl over till
the next regular meeting.

A communication from the public
works engineer informed tiie council
lhal the plans and blue prints of the
proposed Fourth street bridge bail
been forwarded to (irand Forks.
A Communication was also read
from the binds and Works depart
ment, acknowledging receipt of a petition for the extension of the North
Fork wagon rood to the upper Franklin townsite.
J. A. Smith tendered his resignation as city scavenger, which  was  ac-
pted.
A petition, signed bv a number of
ratepayers, asking for the construction
of a wagon bridge aernss the Kettle
river at Fourth street, was read.
The chairman of the board of works
reported that nearly all tbe work in
his department' had been completed
fnr the present year.
The hoard of works wus  instructed
to have two or three more crosswalks
repaired in the business portion of the
city.
The question nf the city purchasing
City Klectrieian Watevston's building
on the city lot fnr au electrical repair
shop was again brought up. After
ventilating the subject, the council,
on motion of Aid. Cooper and McDonald, decided not to buy.
Aid. Clements reported that the
owners of the buildings now being
erected on Granby street bad applied
for city water. On motion of Aid.
Spraggett, the water and light committee was authorized to have the
main extended to the premises.
The council instructed the health
and relief committee to see that the
remains of Chas. Thompson, a city
charge, who died in the hospital yesterday, were pooperly interred.
The cemetery committee reported
that the fence around the burying
ground had been completed, and the
committee was authorized to put in
four five-foot picket gates.
The mayor brought up the sprinkling question. On motion of Aid.
McDonald and Cooper, the chief of
police was instructed to attach the
fire hose to the hydrants in "the business centre every morning and give
the streets a good drenching.
Aid. McDonald was then granted
leave to introduce a by law to raise
$4000 for the construction of a wagon
bridge at Fourth street. It was read
a first and second time, and then con-
siderered in committee, after which it
passed a third reading under a suspension of thh rules.
It being then ahout 1 o'clock, the
council adjourned, presumably in
order to give those members working on the day shift in the smelter
an opportunity to eat their breakfast before going to tbeir labors.

From Willow Creek, Out., Miss E.
Deigel writes; "A few years ago I
was drenched with rain and got lumbago; it was like a steel  rod  piercing I Extensile development work
long impresses one with the magnitude of the development work now in
progress. The milling game has a
subtle fascination unequalled by that
nf any other occupation. Bugged
men of weather beaten appearance
are seen at work on every hillside,
Tbe very next- shot iu the il'ouuapping
may bring them fame and fortune?
The el'iBive goddess they aver cannot
dodge them always. Some of them
are inevitably doomed to failure, for
so fate has decreed. Tbey have followed the game for years without
success, buoyed up by a hope destined
never to see its fruition.
Processions of pack trains and
heavily laden wagons bearing supplies
over the long and dusty road from
Grand Forks are encountered every
half mile; likewise struggling groups
uf prospectors on foot or mounted
heading south to the mining recorder's office.
Kveningtide and as Ihe sun sinks
behind the peaks the.blasting ceases
and a strange calmness follows. Night
envelopes the earth apace. Soon the
open fires scattered up anil down tint-alley or dotting the hillsides indicat
ing the eamp grounds where tired
prospectors are preparing their evening meal. . One by one the lights
gradually disappear and naught is
heard but the drowsy tinkle of bells
on half a hundred horses munching
feed in the bottom lands, the distant
bark of a coyote or the screech of an
owl.
The   large ore  bodies   of   Franklin
amp were inspected this summer by
scores of prominent milling engineers
and other representatives   of  capital.
I'he visitors were almost a unit in declaring  that the prospective ure  t..linage  is  enormous ami  in   predicting
that shipments three years hence  will
equal the present output  of I'hoenix.
The C. P. R. and the Great Northern
have had their experts on the ground
It is au open secret that their reports
haye been of the most favorable character.    The Kettle Valley line in now
building   north   from   Grand   Forks.
The  grading  outfits   are  now strung
along  the  route to a point fourteen
nihes beyond  the smelter citv.    Tie
railway will probably reach   Franklin
in the fall of  11107, when a large oie
tonnage will be available.     Although
no ollicial announcement has yet been
made it  is generally understood that
the  C. 1'. II.  is   backing   the   Kettle
Valley railway extension.    Jim Hill
will probably parallel his rival at  nu
distant duy.    His surveyors  have located  u line to a point about 28 miles
from this camp.      While the McKinley overshadows all  other properties
iu  this  camp there is every reason to
believe that it will  have several formidable rivals.    A list of twenty or
thirty  promising prospects  could  be
enumerated.    The best aie tin* Maple

groups.    The former sprung into importance  l'-s>  than  two months ago
when a rich strike nf chalcopyrite ore
was iiiiide on the surface.    The showing has since improved wonderfully.
Five   large  open   cuts   are   in    high
grade ore.    Many ..I.I timers declare
tbat the Maple Leaf far surpasses the
McKinley at thc same stage of development.   This group was bonded from
